NEW AUTHOR REALIZES LIFELONG DREAM AND WRITES A MYSTERY NOVEL REQUESTED BY HOLOCAUST MUSEUMS NATIONWIDE


What I Played this Week, and More News!

image

Haven't done this in awhile, so maybe I should call this "What I played this quarter!". I had to post up on JetCar Stunts though, since it's the latest game I can't stop playing (it's not a new title--released in 2009). Crazy addictive time killer is what it should be called!. Featured in iTunes essential games, you can grab it here at $1.99. Expansion course packs also available. The concept is to race through 3D high-flying aerial stunt courses with your rocket powered jet car (who wouldn't want one of those)... More app news follows...

 



Amazon to offer lending library for Kindle app

Libraries are increasingly offering patrons the opportunity to check out ebook and audio versions of current books. And later this year that opportunity will expand with Amazon's new Kindle LIbrary Lending. Some 11,000 U.S. libraries, in partnership with OverDrive, a media distributor, will make ebooks available to local patrons. You'll be able to check out a book electronically and begin reading it immediately on Amazon's free Kindle app.

image

 

Here’s another children’s book app developer that got it right – Goosed Up HD is colorful, entertaining and fun. This is not a book formatted for an iPad. This is the new animated, electronic book that makes reading fun!

Looking for a way to keep your kids busy while traveling or waiting in the doctor’s office? You know, something entertaining enough to keep them busy, but also quiet? Audiobooks For Your Kids for the iPhone could be the answer.

Pros:



Misty Island Rescue - Your kids will love it!

image

 

The developers of Misty Island did a superb job of turning this Thomas & Friends story into an iPad app. Unlike other apps where developers have cut out pieces of the original artwork and then applied some very cheesy animations to them, this app was done right.



How To Photograph An Atomic Bomb

image

 

Nuclear weapons hold a somewhat unique attraction in our society.  They are at the same time the most destructive force imaginable, and yet many of us are drawn to it, not unlike moths to a light bulb.  I have always been simultaneously drawn to and repulsed by nuclear weapons, and so I was intrigued by the iPad ebook, How To Photograph An Atomic Bomb, which takes you up close and personal with atomic weapons, and even takes you behind the scenes in some of the efforts to record and film nuclear explosions.



eBook publishing covered at Gatekeepers Post!

image

Not directly iPhone/Pod/Pad related (though they will have an app coming out--currently there's a mobile page), I read a ton of eBooks, and love the fact that they are changing the publishing industry. I used to love Stephen King, but could rarely afford his newest books (being lowly enlisted in the military). If eBooks had been around then, I might've had alternatives to paying a small fortune for a good read.
